Carter County Schools will be closed Tuesday, October 24 due to flooding.
According to school director Kevin Ward, a survey of the county about 5 p.m. Monday showed roads were unsafe for travel.
Ward told meteorologist Ricky Matthews that debris on the roads and washed out bridges were also a concern.
Cloudland Elementary School is prepared to help anyone needing a place to stay. The shelter there is open.
